D.C. Goes the Maryland Route on Concealed Carry

VSSA Life Member and Second Amendment attorney Steve Halbrook predicted it and the Washington Times reports today that DC has gone the Maryland road in the draft of their ordinance allowing its residents to carry:
Mr. Nathan said the city modeled its “may issue” approach to permits, which is virtually certain to face a lawsuit, on states such as New York and Maryland, where such statutes have withstood challenges in federal courts. But a similar requirement in California stating that a person seeking the permit prove they were confronted with a “clear and present danger” was struck in February. That ruling is on hold pending appeals.
DC residents may have to wait to see if Peruta vs. San Diego makes it to the Supreme Court to get a real chance at carrying outside their home.
